Online users wondering "what ever happened to so-and-so?" can now use Lost and Found International's Lost Friends Center to track people down.

To use the service, visitors fill out an online form that asks questions about the missing person. Once the form is submitted, the info is posted and made available for viewing on the site.

In addition to the Lost Friends Center, the site has links to other Web pages with missing person info, reunion organizations, and alumni associations.
